Transcript for DA announces results of review into police-involved shooting of Stephon Clark
Yeah. Now to the family of stephon Clark speaking out overnight after the district attorney said the two officers involved in his shooting will not be criminally charged. Family members and their supporters promising their fight for justice is not over. ABC's Zachary kiesch has more. Reporter: Demonstrators say they want justice, but the direct attorney is saying, it wasn't a crime. Gun, gun, gun. Reporter: This morning, no criminal charges for two officers who shot and killed stephon Clark, an unarmed black man, last year in Sacramento. Was a crime committed? We look at the facts and the law and we follow our ethical responsibilities. The answer to that question is no. Reporter: March 18, 2018, cops responding to a vandalism call. Police helicopters already hovering above, begin to zero in and track Clark. Officers on the ground confronting the 22-year-old in a backyard, which turned out to be his grandparents' home. The aumps officers arguing they fought the cell phone in his hand was a gun. It looked like a gun from our perspective. Reporter: Shooting and killing the father of two. The investigation found officers muted their bodycameras multiple times and waited about seven minutes before performing cpr. We can't go over and get him help unless we know you don't have a weapon. Is he breathing? No. Reporter: The D.A. Says Clark ignored commands and took a shooting stance, so they were the Sacramento police chief apologizing to the Clark family. I couldn't imagine the pain that they are in. Reporter: Stephon Clark's mother devastated by the announcement. They executed my son. They executed him in my mom's backyard. We're not going to accept that. Reporter: And Clark's fiancee, fighting back tears. Our boys have to grow up without their father, and I have to continue on as a single parent. Reporter: The shooting led to protests on the streets, and disruptions in local government. While the d.a.'s decision is final, the Sacramento community says they have their own questions about whether Clark's killing was justified. Was the outcome wrong? Was the outcome unacceptable? The answer to both questions is yes. Reporter: The attorney general is doing their own review completely separate from the district attorney, and Sacramento's police chief says changes have been made as a result of this case to foot pursuit and bodycamera policies, but no change to forced policies that continue to affect these communities of color. Zachary kiesch, we appreciate your reporting this morning. Thank you very much.
